Brotherhood is America's oldest continuously operating winery. It even stayed in business during Prohibition by producing government-sanctioned altar and medicinal wines. The winery's John Jaques Building, named after Brotherhood's founder, provides entry to the winery's network of old subterranean caves, where wines are aged in a variety of oak vessels, some dating back to the 1840s.
Today the building also houses a cafe and art and antiques gallery. Brotherhood has changed hands only three times since the death of its original owner. Most recently, a group of investors purchased the winery in 1987, among them Cesar Baeza, a native of Chile with extensive winemaking experience. Brotherhood produces an array of wines, from basic table wines like Chablis, Blush Chablis and Burgundy, to fortified wines, dessert wines and premium varietal wines, like chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.
